    The truth, the absolute truth, is that the chief beauty for the theatre consists in fine bodily proportions.
    Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    A bodily or mental furniture.

    Where can she look until He make the show!
    What can she know until He bid her know!
    How can she live till in her blood He live!
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
